Visiting Writer Series

Through the Visiting Writers Series, our students have the unique opportunity to engage with writers of regional, national and international renown. In some cases, the opportunity comes in the form of a reading and book signing. In other cases, it’s picking an author’s brain over dinner at a local café.

Made possible by APSU’s Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts, the program has featured a number of notable participants, including Richard Wilbur, Gary Snyder, Mary Oliver, Yusef Komunyakaa, Robert Haas, Carolyn Forché, Mark Jarman, Eavan Boland, Lorrie Moore, Stephen Dunn, Rebecca Walker, Ann Patchett and Michael Blumenthal.
